Hi All

I'm currently working on a refurbishment project and have drawn the existing and proposed elements.

I'm now trying to update some of the existing walls to a new wall type which will allow me to show them as existing blockwork (which will show hatched with view filter applied).

On some of the walls where I have existing doors as downtakings and also new doors added I am getting the error message;

"Infilling element replaced by a later phase insert must be the same type as the insert's host."

Short of deleting the existing and new doors, altering the wall type, then redrawing the doors, is there a simpler work around?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

John.

I have never seen this message.  Please tell us what your wall type is and both doors.

Sorry - should have clarified;

I'm in UK using Revit Architecture 2012.

Walls - existing wall is revit basic wall copied (duplicated) and altered to be 140mm thick.New wall is a duplicate of the first wall with a type mark added to allow me to cross hatch this particular wall type even though it is existing. The cross hatch wall is working in most instances (including walls which have new / existing doors in) but I am getting this message on various walls, all of which include existing doors demolished as well as new doors.

The doors are families created in-house, some of which are based on standard revit doors, others which have been built from scratch.

I have just copied the file and reduced it to a smaller part of the plan area which contained the problem and it now works (ie, the wall now allows me to alter its type) - without deleting any of the elements actually within the wall.

File size is around 30mb. 2 storey building with around 200 rooms. Should I split the project? Could size of file be the issue?

Size is not an issue and do not split the project.  We did a project that was 220 meg plus additional linked structural and MEP models in vers 2008 on a 32 bit machine.  So your 30 meg is nothing.

WWHub - thanks for your response - I'll persevere with the file as it is and try and see if I can come across a solution for the error as I go.

I'm having the same issue but what I've learned so far is that when you have an existing wall with a hosted element that gets demolished, revit creates an infill element automatically to close up the hole.

So what was the actual takeaway from your response WWHub? That your 200mb project is cooler than his 30mb project?? What kind of solution is that?? Wasted bandwidth, and my time.

Interesting comment - shows you didn't read the thread.

I believe that the point was that if its not a problem with 200meg project it should not be a problem with a much smaller 30meg project.  Resurecting a post from a year ago without adding any input or asking a question is a waste of everyones time.
